This past weekend we welcomed a new Pastor new pastor into our congregation, and we have video! Actually, this looks a bit better than the live-stream on YouTube and doesn’t have that annoying glitch in the first 9 minutes, so enjoy!

Today, in a special congregational meeting, the Presbyterian Church in Burlington, by the unanimous decision of all members there assembled, voted to extend a call to Rev.

Jane Wilson who acted as guest moderator, and a HUGE thank you to the Pastor Nominating Committee.
Elder Brenda Flynn delivers a message on the calling of a new pastor for our church.
Pastor Trina talks about Abraham and Sarah, an unlikely couple to become the root of the the religions of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. In a world that divides itself by it’s ideologies, it is important to remember that collectively we are one extended family.
This week Rev. Trina talks about the beginning of Jesus’ ministry. He did not just teach, bought he taught teachers and built up a new movement that became the Christian church built out of dark times, he led a people to question authority and stand for what’s just.
On Baptism of Christ Sunday, Rev. Portillo speaks on the transformative nature of baptism and how it is borne out in the story of Jesus’ own baptism as an inflection point in the life of Christ.
